ARMOR GAMES : The new beta site vs. the 'old' site

  • Announcement
  • Updated 3 years ago
We're in the process of rebuilding Armor Games, and have released the beta site (beta.armorgames.com) so you can be one of the first to play on it.

"Beta" means 'we're still in development'. You'll see constant enhancements in the coming weeks, as we release new features. At the moment, the beta site is just a taste of what's to come.

Armor Games is all about playing the best flash games on the web. Right now, that's what the beta is about: finding and playing games.

Soon we'll be re-adding player accounts, game rating, favoriting games, and everything you've seen on the 'old' Armor Games. And then you'll see a host of new stuff that will make the new Armor Games even better.

In the meantime, everything is still working fine at the 'old' Armor Games (www.armorgames.com). If you want to create/edit your account, rate and favorite games, make comments, etc... the 'old' site is the place to do it.

Thanks very much for playing on Armor Games!

The site is amazing guys but the only thing I would change is a link to more new games on the site since you guys only show a few on that version and I know it's still in progress. I can't wait until you guys finish it. Great job!

I, personally, feel as though I am getting a bit lost. Usually, I see (going from below the game, top to bottom) an advertisement, summary/rate, comment, and past comments (then other stuff that I pay no attention to). And now, all i see is the summary and the ad taking place of the comment, rate, and past comments. If that is something that is my fault, my bad, please just send me something, public or not, to fix that.
Also, when I look around for the newest games, all I see is other games that are not new, only the games that they have featured, which I definitely liked in the other game.
Now, the background is a lot better and it is just all in all cooler, however I wan't to actually interact with the gaming features.

its all a bit overwelming. i think it needs to be split up more and it MUST have a section for new games. if you guys dont have an area for new games, i can promise you that you WILL lose players cause we dont want to look around to find out if there is a new game

i just don't like the way the game genres are displayed at the bottom i prefer the old way where you just look at one genre at a time, also the new colours are less fun and kinda boring

I didn't like the new Armor Games looking. The previous one was always awesome, like if it were the site's registered mark, I mean, thinking on Armor Games always reminded me that amazing previous design. Also the looking of the header buttons from the old site, when you roll your mouse over them is looking weird, please change to the previous black-rounded corners. Thanks for reading my suggestion.

Is it just me, or does the new design look a lot like kongregate.com? On Armorgames I always liked having the 12 newest games aviable on the first glance. A slideshow is beautiful, no doubt, but just not as handy when it comes to daily checking whats new...

This is awesome, I love the style. I can't help but notice that it looks a lot like Kongregate, and It's worked amazingly for them. Next thing you know, you'll be adding badges and everything ^.^

Hello Armor Games Team, I'm a frequent user of your gaming site (sry for my english cause I'm from germany) and I looked at your new design, and It's really nice, maybe even better than the old one BUT: the categories buttons (like action adventure etc at the top of the site) should have a block effect, but this effect can also be transparent, just that the button is easier to click at...

Thank you

It looks like a lot of the inspiration for the new version came from Kongregate's layout. :o

That's okay, though.

Kongregate is pretty great. :3 And that's how things improve - you take old ideas that were great, build on them, and try to make something even better.

I actually really like the Kongregate layout with an Armor Games touch. It's really nice. ^-^ But I <3 both websites anyway. :P

Hello, the new site is nice, but have one ugly thing - it's banners. I think, design would be quite better if banners would be vertically placed on left and right sides. (Sorry for my English)

  • New colour scheme and logo: much improved, they fit with the Armor name and you've finally got rid of the slight cheesiness of the swords and shield.

  • Assuming login space is yet to come.

  • Don't care for the scroller, they're much over-used. At least you don't have it set to auto-scroll.

  • Any particular reason the Blog and News section isn't flush with the top of the columns to the left of it?

  • Biggest complaint is the reduced number of new games seen on the front page. Only 3 in the new and hot section? Not good.

The new site is really cool, and i like the "new games" scroll thing and that you can see the grade you gave the games better

The banners should be like the old site (vertically left & right). that's the only thing i noticed.

but overall is't awesome!

From cyberinsekt:

Assuming login space is yet to come.

This annoys me. I'd think the login would be the first thing on the page when redesigning. I just don't get it.
